Monday is the first hot day of the year with 90s galore – Matt

SPOKANE, Wash.– If you thought it was warm today, tomorrow is going to blow that away. Monday will be the hottest day of the year thus far and the first time many of us will have felt 90-degree heat in a long time.

Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and surrounding towns will end up in the low 90s with a few upper 80s close to the water on Monday afternoon. Remember that just a week ago our highs were only in the 60s and we had our first 80-degree day just last Wednesday! Your body may be having a little more trouble than usual adjusting to the warmth. Practice heat safety if you’re going to be outside a lot tomorrow.

Local Highs Monday

 

Region Highs Monday

Elsewhere in the Inland Northwest upper 90s are in the forecast for Lewiston, Omak, and Ephrata while low 100s are possible in Moses Lake south to the Tri-Cities. A Heat Advisory is in effect on Monday for these areas from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sure, it’s not like this time last year, but that was once in a lifetime. This heat can still give you problems, so take it easy.

 

Heat Advisory

Tuesday our temperatures will drop 8 to 12 degrees as a cold front moves in. It won’t bring much rain, but an isolated thunderstorm or two is a possibility on the east slopes of the Cascades and along the Canada border Monday night through Wednesday. Most of us will experience a dry, windy Tuesday afternoon with gusts around 25 mph.

We cool off more on Wednesday with highs only in the 70s but will be heating up again just in time for July 4th weekend.
